Beyonce Knowles has tasted solo success in the UK
Beyonce Knowles, a member of the pop act Destiny's Child, has kept hold of the number one spots on both the UK singles and albums.

Knowles, who has launched a solo career this year, has spent a third week on top of the singles charts with her single Crazy in Love.

The song beat off strong competition from Benny Benassi feat The Biz and their single Satisfaction, which debuted in second place.

Wayne Wonder's No Letting Go was at number three.

Other new entries in the top ten included The Coral's Pass it On, and D-Side's Invisible, while Super Furry Animals and the recently-reformed US rock band Jane's Addiction made the top 20.

In the albums chart Knowles' Dangerously in Love held the top slot for the fourth week in a row.

In second place - one higher than last week - was Innocent Eyes by the Australian singer Delta Goodrem. Goodrem, who also stars in Neighbours, was recently diagnosed with lymphatic cancer.

US rock band Kings of Leon also saw their debut album Youth and Young Manhood rise, climbing from number five to three.

There were no new records in the top 10, with the Manic Street Preachers' Lipstick Traces, an album of b-sides and rarities, making number 11.

Barry White's The Collection jumped from number 68 to number 15 following the death of the soul legend on 4 July.
